    Check for fuel pressure, if you run the tank low allot it burns out the fuel pump, the pump is cooled by the gas it sits in.

It started fine, then started to sputter, then stalled. It tries to start but not getting enough gas.

First reset inertia switch in the driver side of the trunk near the quarter panel. Next, put a couple of gallons in the tank if not absolutely positive it is not out as the gauge may be reading false. Check fuel pressure at the schrader valve and fuel volume. Post fuel pressure here.

Car won't start anti-theft light is blinking

try reseting the computer by leaving the battery unhooked for about 30 min. if that doesnt work then it may be a clogged fuel filter or you could check the fuel shut off switch in the trunk behind the drivers trunk panel.

2002 caravan stalled, faulty gas gage added fuel ran for 2 blocks, stalled added 4 more gallons non-ethanol - no start checked fuel pump fuses & relay had towed 2 miles - started fine! ideas?...

Looks like your fuel supply line has got chocked. This happens when the dirt from the gas tank comes into the fuel line when the tank is getting empty as it has happened in your case. Check your fuel filter and replace if required.

2002 ford mustang. Engine rotates, but wont start. Replaced battery

Check to see if the fuel system saftey switch needs to be re-set. It's a red push button located in the trunk on the drivers side just forward of the brake light under the trunk carpet. If it's popped up the fuel pump circut is cut off. Simply push the button to re-set.

Try and turn your key from run to off run to off without cranking your engine to pressure you fuel lines and pump... you may also need more then one gallon in your fuel tank.
